Significant Winter Storm Impacting the U.S. East Coast

GOES East captured this visible image of the strong winter storm affecting the Northeast and parts of the Mid-Atlantic on February 9, 2017.

According to the National Weather Service’s Eastern Region, “a strong coastal winter storm will bring significant impacts to portions of the northern Middle Atlantic through northern New England Thursday (February 9, 2017) into Thursday night. The potential exists for heavy snow and strong winds leading to dangerous travel conditions affecting the major Interstate 95 corridor, including Philadelphia, New York City and Boston.”

This image was created by combining visible channel data from NOAA’s GOES East satellite with NASA’s “Blue Marble” data set to create colorized images of atmospheric conditions over the region.
